      The process is impressive. I grew up around the corner from a gunsmith in Maine so I really appreciate the art and craft that goes into it.

          I watched a fantastic BBC documentary on the history of the guitar. I have a cousin who is now at Johns Hopkins Medical School who built a violin as a part of the gifted and talented program and have an uncle who builds electric basses as a hobby. My dad logs with horses and another uncle runs a sawmill. One of my dreams is to have an instrument that my father cut the trees, one uncle sawed the wood, and the other built the bass.

          In a related series of videos (not my family):



          In watching the first video Brasilian Rosewood is extinct. The luthiers that have it usually keep it in a vault.

              I think this is a great accompaniment video I admit that some of the footage is shared:



              I find the combination of the art and science fascinating.
